2.   HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION

   EMERGENCY OVERVIEW: Gray/black solid with no odor. Friction materials are not considered hazardous
   materials. They will not support combustion but may release irritating and potentially toxic combustion
   products under fire conditions. Exposure to dust during grinding, sanding or machining may cause eye and
   respiratory tract irritation. The hazardous components in this product are bound in a resin matrix and are not
   released during normal handling and use.
POTENTIAL HEALTH HAZARDS

SKIN:    None expected under normal use conditions. Contact with dust may cause mild irritation Some
         persons may be sensitive to residual uncured phenolic resins and develop dermatitis-like reactions
         similar to poison ivy.
EYES:    None expected under normal use conditions. Exposure to dust may cause eye irritation.

INHALATION:        None expected under normal use conditions. Inhalation of dust may cause irritation or
                   soreness in throat, nose and respiratory tract.

INGESTION: Not an anticipated route of entry.

DELAYED EFFECTS:        Ingredients are associated with lung irritation and possible lung injury from prolonged
                        overexposure. However, the potential for exposure from this product is low because the
                        ingredients in friction materials are physically bonded together by a resin polymer
                        matrix.

4.   FIRST AID MEASURES

** If any of the symptoms persist, seek medical attention immediately.**

SKIN:    Wash skin with soap and water after handling parts. Seek medical attention for persistent irritation.

EYES:    Flush eyes with cool running water if dust becomes embedded. Seek medical attention if reddening
         persists.

INHALATION: Remove affected person to fresh air. Seek medical attention if irritation persists.

INGESTION: Not an anticipated route of entry.

ADVICE TO PHYSICIAN:          No specialized first aid or medical treatment procedures are required. Treat according
                              to symptoms present.


5.   FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Use extinguishing media appropriate for the surrounding area.

UNUSUAL FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS: Toxic and irritating materials may be released in a fire. This
friction material product, as shipped, is not considered hazardous, but machining (arcing, grinding, drilling, or
chamfering) may create dusts that are combustible and should be considered hazardous. If the product is ground or
machined, local exhaust in accordance with the American National Standards Institute Z9.2 is recommended. Refer to
the Bendix Brake Aftermarket Technical Bulletin Rebuilder Supplier Vol. No. 80 Sheets 1-4 for additional information.

SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING PRECAUTIONS/INSTRUCTIONS:
Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) and full fire fighting turn-out gear (Bunk Gear) are recommended if
articles are involved in a fire.

HAZARDOUS COMBUSTION PRODUCTS: Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, ammonia, formic acid,
hydrocarbons, phenols, aldehydes, and soot.

6.   ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

IN CASE OF SPILL OR OTHER RELEASE:                Always wear recommended personal protective equipment. No
special precautions are required for intact packaging containing this product. If product is crushed, use respiratory
protection equipment. Do not dry sweep product or use compressed air to clean up any residues. Use a wet method or
vacuums equipped with High Efficiency Particulate (HEPA) filters to clean up any residues from this product. Wastes
should be placed in dust tight containers or sealed plastic bags for disposal. Label Properly.
Spills and releases may have to be reported to Federal and/or local authorities. See Section 15 regarding reporting
requirements.

7.   HANDLING AND STORAGE

NORMAL HANDLING: Always wear recommended personal protective equipment including respiratory protection
if dust is generated. Avoid breathing or creating dust. Although these products do not contain asbestos, it is
recommended to follow the OSHA Appendix F to 1910.1001 “Work Practices and Engineering Controls for
Automotive Brake and Clutch Inspection, Disassembly, Repair and Assembly - Mandatory”.

STORAGE RECOMMENDATIONS: No special requirements.

8.   EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

ENGINEERING CONTROLS: This friction material product, as shipped, is not considered hazardous, but machining
(arcing, grinding, drilling or chamfering) may create dusts or airborne fibers in excess of the OSHA Permissible
Exposure Limits (PEL’s) for the respective ingredients and should be considered hazardous.

Packages containing this friction material product should be labeled as follows:

                                                    CAUTION
                                       AVOID CREATING OR BREATHING DUSTS
                                        CONTAINS HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCES
                                         WHICH MAY CAUSE LUNG INJURY.

Standard industrial hygiene practices, including housekeeping and vacuuming with High Efficiency Particulate
(HEPA) filters or wet cleaning work surfaces to prevent dusts from becoming airborne should be implemented and
maintained.


PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT

     SKIN PROTECTION: None needed for normal use. In situations where prolonged contact is likely, wear
     impervious gloves such as rubber.

     EYE PROTECTION: None needed for normal use. In situations where prolonged contact is likely, chemical safety
     goggles are recommended.

     RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: None needed for normal use. In situations where dust is likely and the exposure
     limits are exceeded, a NIOSH approved particulate respirator (N95 or better filters) may be worn. Selection and
     use of respiratory equipment must be in accordance with OSHA 1910.134 and good industrial hygiene practice.

     Other: None needed for normal use. In situations where prolonged contact is likely, wear impervious clothing as
     needed to prevent contact. A safety shower and eyewash should be available in the immediate work area.

ADDITIONAL REGULATORY INFORMATION: The finished units of friction material shipped to you contain
polymer resin encapsulated ingredients. Subsequent processing (arcing, grinding, drilling or chamfering) may create a
potential for the release of the ingredients to the atmosphere (e.g. from your dust collection system if you grind our
product) or to a landfill (e.g. if you dispose of wetted or pelletized grinding dust or drill chips). If they are of sufficient
quantities, you may be required to report such “Releases” on EPA Form “R”.

WHMIS CLASSIFICATION (CANADA): Not a controlled product as shipped. Certain processes (e.g., grinding)
may cause this article to be considered as a controlled product.

FOREIGN INVENTORY STATUS: Not determined.
